The Chinese alarm clock is already broken.
That makes four stopped timepieces in the apartment in just the last two weeks.
My mother gave me a bottle opener Saturday. Saturday night the keychain bottle-opener I’ve been using for eight-plus years finally snapped and broke.

I was a teen star in Italy growing up. I hated it. People staring at you when you’re out. And always I had the worst fans. The girl with one leg. That was my fan. “Hey, Guido, guess who is here for you!” And the girl who called. My grandfather and I have the same name. She call his house. She get my grandmother. My grandmother says, oh yes, here is his number. Then the girl call all the time. What is your favorite movie? she wants to know. What is your favorite drink? At 7am!
